    could you also bring the rook to a4 and once he kills it bring the other one to b4?

    If you're suggesting white sacrifice a rook in order to use the other one to help with checkmate, I'm quite sure it doesn't work.

    is rc5+ working as well? for example: 1.Rc5+ Ka4 2.Ra3+ Kb4 3.Ra5 (threatening R3a4 mate) Kc4 4.Kc2 (R3a4# again is the threat, and if now 4...Rb8, then 5.R3a4 Rb4 6.b3#) d3+ 5.Kd2, and i can't see a move for black. 5...Rb8 6.Ra4+ Rb4 7.b3+ Kd4 8.Rxb4#. Or, am i missing something so obvious, i'm going to be embereced.

    At quick glance, it appears you are indeed correct, but of course a mate in eight is too many moves to be the solution to this problem.

    The only reason is to delay checkmate by one move.
